4.1: Introduction

The simplest situation that can occur in the study of fluid is when the fluid is at rest or quasi rest. This topic was introduced to most students in previous study of rigid body. However, here this topic will be more vigorously examined. Furthermore, the student will be exposed to stability analysis probably for the first time. Later, the methods discussed here will be expanded to more complicated dynamics situations.
